Good morning! If you follow my blog you know we held the big bridal shower for my future daughter in law this past weekend. I know when most people hear, “bridal shower” they think games. (And usually with an eye roll.) But we played a few bridal shower games you won’t hate. (I promise.)
My sisters planned all of the food and games for the bridal shower and Paris was the theme. The first game was called “Guess how many kisses for the soon to be Mrs.?” My sister-in-law purchased a pretty glass apothecary jar from Hobby Lobby and filled it with gold Hershey Kisses. Everyone guesses how many kisses are in the jar and writes down the number and their name on a piece of paper. The person who guesses closest to the actual number wins the jar and the kisses! It’s simple and quick. And no dressing each other up in toilet paper to simulate a bridal gown! (not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
The actual number of kisses was 328 and the winning number was 333. My niece won! I think her flower girl daughter was VERY happy! Once the kisses are gone, she will have a lovely jar to re-purpose! Someone guessed 60. (HB) 😉 Pictured below is the beautiful bride to be with her darling flower girl. (Who’s Momma won the kisses game!)
The other game is called “Guess Who? Bride or Groom?” There is a list of questions about the happy couple and you guess things like “who will cry on the big day?”, etc. I’ve seen several versions of this game on Pinterest and it would be easy to replicate or make up your own set of questions. My niece found this one and we all thought it was cute! Everyone plays except for the mothers and the bride. After everyone completes the quiz, the bride gives the correct answers. And the winner gets a prize!
Also, did you know you can buy tiny little stickers that go on the bottom of Hershey Kisses? I found these adorable Paris Eiffel Tower stickers on Amazon. The vendor is JS&B Enterprises. You can buy 216 Paris Eiffel Tower Stickers for $9.99. Then you just peel and stick. So simple and it really adds a fun Parisian touch!
We used the kisses with the Eiffel Tower stickers in the party favor jars and in the candy dishes on the tables. I’ll share the sweet party favors soon.
The bridal shower was so much fun and the games were quick and easy. Plus, we learned a few fun things about the bride and groom! Here are a few more pictures from the fun day. The kitchen island set up with the games and party favors….

And some of the gifts….
Some personalized napkins from Zazzle:
Some glittery Eiffel Tower picks. My sister-in-law found these and used them to skewers donut holes for the shower. After we ate the donuts, I stuck a few in my cupcakes. These didn’t last long either!
The shower came and went and next up we have the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. The Bachelor and Bachelorette parties are forth coming but those won’t involve me so I can relax for a while! Wait, I still need to pick out invitations for the rehearsal dinner and a few dresses to wear for the big weekend. Yikes! I guess I can’t relax for too long!
Thanks so much for stopping by and supporting my blog! I’ll post more fun details and a few recipes from the shower soon! xoxo Dell
